Wycombe showed us exactly how we should have played.Energy ,passion ...closed us down and pressured throughout the whole game.We were gutless ,clueless and a team of individuals who apart from a couple of players...couldn't care less.
Blame for me starts with the worst midfield in living memory,and Ron's /CP decision not to strengthen this area in the Jan transfer window when you could see relegation appearing on the horizon.
Whatever you think about Steve Evans would he have tolerated a display like that today...the players should be ashamed
Another Surrey Shrimper said:
I felt that orange wasn't really Akenfenwe's colour, made him look fat.
I don't really want to talk about anything else that happened today.
Chris Powell’s mate said:
Due largely to the fact he is. Actually, I have to admire him for playing in the Football League - never mind League One.
Imagine, if you didn't know him and he turned up to play for your park team one Sunday?
Wickford Blue said:
Akinfenwa - 8 goals in 12 games against us! Sooner her retires the better!
Smiffy’s Best Man said:
It’s no surprise that Wycombe are relegation contenders. They were poor. And that alone, should sum up how good we were.
Flovall Flyer said:
How the hell did we let an overweight, slow, clumsy 36 year old score twice? Akinfenwa is a Sunday League player, he cannot head the ball he cannot control the ball, he was given so much leniency by the ref it was unbelievable.
Stuart W said (about Akinfenwe):
He's a f*** sight better than anything we've got up front.
Southendkid said (same theme):
He's not fat, he's just ridiculously muscular, this is him shirtless:
Davewebbsbrain said (in reply to Stuart W):
Can't disagree with that
CM2 Blue said:
Like everyone else I was massively disappointed with our performance today. ‘No one ever drowned in sweat’, Lou Holz an American college football coach once said and there was never a chance of that today! We were outplayed and outfought by a poor Wycombe team that was nevertheless much better than we were and thoroughly deserved the win. We never threatened, didn’t play constructive, passing football and so never looked like getting the win we surely targeted.
Fitz said (another replying to Stuart W):
No he’s not, but he has a team around him that played with passion, commitment and set him up to take two very well taken chances. Only Hart, Humphreys and Cox came out of the game with any credit.
Spaceman Spiff (and by the Wycombe fan he was sitting with in the North Stand was me):
To add insult to injury, I was in the North Stand with the Wycombe fans, as I was with a mate from work. I didn’t mind, i really thought we might be better this time - but no, total wet spineless crap left me surrounded by wild celebrations when I hated the world. Our players should try being a fan and seeing what we see from the stands, but they couldn’t give a **** and probably wouldn’t then either. Most of this shower of **** need shipping out at the end of the season - and good luck to them getting other clubs, they don’t deserve a contract in the Southern League let alone the Southend team.

Please pass this message onto your friend from me...
As significant as it may be for our season, the feeling of losing today still won’t come anywhere close to the feeling he would have had, seeing The Pig slam home that Barry Corr knockdown in the 122nd minute, in front of 20,000 Shrimpers. Nor will it come anywhere near as close as that penalty save from Daniel Bentley
Lots of love GBJ Xx

as i left the ground walking along the pitch in front of the East stand I noticed the WW manager Ainsworth sitting in the back row of the dug out - alone - totally drained looking - taking in a big moment in his career. Just quietly recovering from what had clearly been for him a massive game and a highly intense experience .... a guy completely committed to a club who had ground out a significant result..
good on him - it looked like that he had given everything as I think his team did –
I thought the first half was quite even, Dieng and White or Lennon were doubling up on Akinfenwa and getting him rattled - and it worked for that first 45 minutes. Whatever changed at half time which meant that was no longer the case, is the reason Bayo was able to score two goals against us.
We all knew he'd score today though, didn't we? He always does, and you can't begrudge him it because he knows the score, he takes the abuse from the crowd and turns it on its head. I would LOVE him to have signed for us a few seasons back when he left Wimbledon.
